- Differential scanning calorimetry, or DSC, is a thermoanalytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature.
- DSC is the generic term for the following two measurement methods.
- The North America region is expected to hold significant market share.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measures temperatures and heat flows related with thermal changes in a material that include polymers, rubbers, plastics, coatings, composites, chemicals, organic materials, laminates, and food, etc. The differential scanning calorimetry is most widely used in chemical and polymer industry for investigation, comparison and end-use performance evaluation of materials in quality control and research applications. The material properties measured by differential scanning calorimetry techniques include glass transitions, melting, product stability, crystallization, and oxidative stability. The differential scanning calorimetry is an innovative and primarily a more accurate way of measuring the heat flow in different materials. It provides significant improvements in baseline flatness, transition resolution, and sensitivity. The technology used in differential scanning calorimetry allows direct measurement of heat capacity and makes the modulated differential scanning calorimetry experiments faster and more accurate. Differential scanning calorimetry measures the heat flow rate and matches the changes between the heat flow rate of the material sample and the known reference materials. As a sample undergoes a transition such as melting and crystallization, the heat is absorbed or released. This change in heat flow is then measured by the system and can be analyzed. The difference defines the changes in the material composition and oxidation.
